I tried Olay® Total Effects 7 in 1 Anti-Aging Moisturizer, which claims skin can look up to 10 years younger in one month. I receive a free sample to try courtesy of BzzAgent! I've actually been on the hunt for a decent anti-aging moisturizer for a little while now. I've been using the same moisturizer for the past 10 years and I have started to notice a few more fine lines lately so I think my moisturizer need to change since my skins needs are changing.

The 7 effects are:
1. Visibly smoothes fine lines and wrinkles
2. Evens skin tone appearance
3. Enhances brightness
4. Minimizes the look of pores
5. Visibly reduces age spots
6. Restores firmness
7. Replenishes moisture

It did a decent job moisturizing and it might have increased the firmness (though there was no obvious difference).

However, unfortunately I did not see any difference in the fine lines on my face. In fact I didn’t really see much change in my skin at all. I’m in my early 30s and think it might be better suited for older individuals. It didn’t even out my skin tone, it didn’t make my skin brighter or reduce age spots. I also had a break out problem and a minor rash during the time I was testing this product. My skin prior to starting this moisturizer was pretty clear so that was very disappointing. I have very sensitive skin, so there was likely an ingredient in this moisturizer that did not agree with me.

Overall I would consider this product an average moisturizer, a less than average anti-age skincare solution, and likely not suitable for those with sensitive skin. I’m very disappointed, but I will be going back to my regular moisturizer and keep trying new products until I find one that is right for me.
